' itoUuion." . Singularly enough comes a proposi. tion for a "Kc-Union of Abolitionints, without distinction of parly, to bo held in Chicago on the 9th, 10th,- and 11th of June." If the ghastly skeletons of nil who fell in the lato war which tho Ab olitionists invoked could ho present, it would add greatly to the .Impressive ncss of tho occasion. Enlarged. That excellent Daily, the Kuoxvillo Chronicle, has been enlarged and other wiso improved, affording a considerable addition to its reading department. Kuoxvillo has a reputed population of from twelve to fifteen thousand inhab itants, and we don't know why its dailies should not compare favorably even with thoso of more- pretentious places. Tho School Law of Ohio. The common school law of Ohio, framed by llopublican legislators, docs not recognize mixed schools. In 1S7I, in a test cane, tho Supreme Court of that Stte, composed of five Republican Judges, decided unanimously that the fourteenth amendment to tho Federal Constitution docs not require such schools. Tho court said : Equality of lights docs not involve tho necessity of educating white and colored persons in tho same school, any more than it does that of cducuiug children of both sexes in tho same school. Any classification which pre serves substantially equal schoo; ad vantages U not prohibited by cither the State or Federal Constitution, nor WOllKHt coilti aA ellO tho nroviciona of cither. Good Times Ahead. The Chattanooga Commercial says: Trobably the best indication that we shall nil soon sec bettor times is the fact that the laboring men aro all now able to get work. 'When tho people have work at good wages, the merchants and others havo business. Wo have printc,d posters calling for 700 laborers within tho past two days, to work on tho Cin cinnati roadv Dcsidcs this tho building and other operations in the city have greatly increased the local demand for labor. Tho shadow which the good time coming casts beforo it is hero, and the indications nro that everything will bo lovely in tho immediate future." Grant and tho Democracy.' Commenting upon the reputed de claration of Judge rierrcpotit, that President Grant will not only bo re elected, but get tho support of tho Sou thern Democrats, tho Lynchburg Vir ginian, a conservative organ, says: Ho may return to ids first lovo and determine, liko Andrew Johnson, to be n now Moses for tho suffering, burthen ed pcoplo of tho South. Ho may do all tins, and unite in nimscii mo requisites of an availablo candidate even for n third term. Ho has done much to alien ato tho South from him aud to subvert tho conlidouco of this pcoplo in his good intentions, lint they might bo content to accept and uso "tho conqueror of tho rebellion" to chastise tho brazen-faced party that is tho chief causo of all that they havo suffered sinco the war. Tho Methodists on Temperance. Tho Southern Mothodistn, lutcly In conference at Louisville, look a decided position on tho temperance question, adopting by a very largo voto Ull5 to 118, being moro than tho necessary two thirds a minority report that any per son making, buying, selling, or using ns a beverage, Intoxicating liquors shall bo, upon conviction, dobarrod from membership In tho Church. This action will bo Bent louud to tho local confer ences, nud if tho majority of thrco fourths concur it will bccomonlaw. As a test of tho fooling in tho conference, one of tho most prominent member, llov. Dr. KegoMcr, H5f tho Ualtlmoro Conference, declared hlmsolf in favor of this social legislation," even if it struck fjO.iHX) mention from tho roll. This action of the Methodist Confer ence will probably liavo moro pciina nctit effect t in behalf of temperance than tho tnoru demonstrative crusade movement. MafndiuctU has now two Judges on the bench of the Court of Cluini Loring and Ilichardson. r. : 1 r- TIia f'l.ll IM.,1.4. Kill m ...... "he Atlanta Methodist Adrocate ha a'tn'thy articlo npon this subject from ddch we extract the following: KOi beginningin public schools ha teen nado in most of tho Slate in te Saudi, and they arc generally gain iig favor, but there Is not intercut kufti :ina U' many of them to continue tho H sleii on tho plan of mixed school. Vovct noi-1 '.ro willow show the choice W be between separate schools or none. Iho abvtract civil ' right" to mixed Mhools must probably be udmittcd mi ilcr IhcConstilution, or at leaU would lif nMlTied Itv Dm iintk'iirn nf 1,111 tait lh "right" to have them does not iwoviil hcm, neither does it furnish tho nt'itey for their support. This ' right' is simply an idea, a nothing hut vUl8 conceded on every hand now, uiveiiiuy hhuck. A man has a right to he il), but that Aoe no tni- rick .Noiwitiisiiiiuiiiig iho right, he may vork hard all Ids days and die poorAt last. All of tho citizens of the U.ifcd Slates have the right to bo Pres. iduit, but that does not make them so. If my supposo that tho adoption of tho civl rights bill will givo them mixed fccbls, let us advise them that it will do ti04uch thing, but simply recnguio the rigit to get them if they can. They have lhn now. Hut if to claim that right fine to attempt to liavo mixed schools wo Id destroy thoso we now have, wJio wotld be the gainer by the change? No out but Satan and the enemies of the coined race, who wish to keep them in igmrance. So this mero abstract right to !avo mixed schools if wo can get than U not worth contending for on gcicral principles, and certainly not wh'ii by so doing wo endanger our higicst interests. That would he grasp ing at a shadow and losing tho sub staico. Wo ought to bo moro wiso and thoightful than to.pursuo such a course. If here aro States or sections where mi:od schools aro practicable, where thof aro the choice of both parties or wluro tho colored people nro so few in lumber (as in tho North) that they can do 10 better, let them nccopt this ar rangement. But for the South general ly, tliero is a moro excellent way that is, o maintain the schools wo havo and maie them better ns wo cau. If to matitain an abstract right would in volve a practical wrong, tho right should bo vaived. Snuige as it may seem to tho nconlo of ho North, tho South tins a perfect nouor ot t lie phantasm or social equal ity. Nor is this repugnance founded in ncro prejudice, but rathor in tho re latbns nud patent immoralities of ev ery variety heretofore existing between thchacc9. This can only bo overcome slovly and by association n3 freemen anj citizens. It will givo way in timo; biiithnt is not hastened bv .unwiso mid cunpulsorr education iu athingluu. I docs not otiginato in personal nni iDsity or hatred so much as iu a falso p.ilosophy of society and foars of cor t'pting tendencies which aro to bo decked and finally eradicated by clc vting tho moral tono of tho pooplo. IrMcnd of promoting social equality, or nnity, the passage of this bill will oouso more intense bittorncss toward tlo North and tho Government and bo tveen tho white and colorod people tlui now exists. From tho New York Herald. We learn from tho Kansas Cty (Mo.) Tines that tho democrats, grangers, li'eral republicans, and nil other ele Hints opposed to thn republican party, hive united on a common platform for the next campaign, which occurs in November. Kansa lias been republi can for twelvo years, but this oombina- ion is likely to revolutionize it, nnd ind the cm of corruption that has won or tho Stato tho tillo of the "rotton toiiunon .veath." It is propablo that niilar coalitions will bo made in many f tho other Western States that will liovo disastrous to tho dominant parly id largely nflbct tho complexion of loliticai parties in tho next Presidential ontcst. This last combination is espe cially significant iu that it shows that ho grangers cannot bo counted upon y tho republican party iu tho elections jeeurriug this full. A convention of til anti-republleans has been called to noet nt Lansing, Michigan, August, fl. (or a similar purpose, and with tho nuro direct view of defeating Senator Chandler' re-election by tho next Loj. iailuro. N Nonsense. T'ho Athens Ucoryhn givos this ad vco: , Wo would respectfully suggest to nil fa iuer slnvo-owiicrs to prctorvo a cor net list of their slaves, and have their nunes .crorded in tho clerk's office- of their respective counties.

Mr. Pier repont met all criticisms on tho Presi dent's courso by nn answer compre hensive, if-not satlslnclory. He said, "Ci rant represents theaverago morality and Intelligence of tho country." None but a tool predicts die political future. I'.ut wo may reasonably nssumo that Mr. Pierrepont is not hazarding any guesses, but is simply revealing tho programme of tho Administration.

Tho Ilaleigh Crescent says : Wo In North Carolina cannot well appreciate our good fortuuo in having driven the carpet-baggers out of tho Stato except by a comparison of our situation with that of other communities still cursed by tho sinister prcsonco of thoso birds of evil omen.

While a youthful couplo wcro being I joined in wedlock In t. justice court, In New York, recently, the damsel rather astonished a number of spectators, by suddenly breaking out, 'I want to know whether wo aro going to keep house or board before going into this thing?" The Judge ruled the que-lion out of order, nnd tho ceremony proceeded A YWt to the Savanna Farm. Diuh ,1!t; Your correspondent, having; a little leisure, took location to vl.lt tho dairy of Mr. Wm. I- lUht, on the Ssvtuna (arm, 1st district Polk county, and will briefly five your read ers w hat he there taw. Mr. liaiit leased id farm for the term of five years, with tho privilege of leasing for another similar term, and with further ptlrllfgc of purchasing should tho owner, Mr. George P.

He is now iiniMiia r. tr .. ., from which ho make seven cheese weekly, weighing near forty pound each. At Iho same time, ho make near half that amount of strictly choice but ter. Ho keeps also a Urge number of hogs on tho w hey Alone, ami informed1 me that he had sold a lot of thont for butchering that were grown nnd fatten ed exclusively on this whey. Of course, he raises quite a lot of young cattlo each year. What ho prizes most, however; is tho vast quantity of manure made, by which ho will doublo his crop nnd at tho samo timo greatly Improve tho so!!; To sum up, ho is making an eminent success of what most of our farmers would make a significant failure Sol because, as would be expected, ho was a practical dairyman, for I am informed' that ho was a machinist Up to tho cloo of our lato war, but becauso ho I not afraid to haul out a load of mauuro lot. ho benefits Ma Landlord.

In all his operations perfect system is manifest, and any of your readers would bo greatly bcucfitodl by a visit to thl farm. It is proper to' say, however, that his dairy buildiug li as yet incomplete, and doc not show tho many conveniences that it wilt wheu fiulshcd.

Agricultural Profit. If with uuusnlly high prlcos for wheat.- consequent upon a poor harvest iu Eu rope, tho farmers aro not satisfied, and complain of tho unprofitableness erf their labors, it becomes a question how tho largo prospective crops at homo and abroad, and ncrcssarlly lower prices'' will affect thcui. Tho Chicago Tribuuo thinks that tho Western limit at which wheat production pays ha been reach' ed. It says: If our agricultural limit liatocif rcarhyl, tho development of tho Wost, save, in tho neighborhood of tho mines' will hereafter bo very slow. Tho west ward way of tho course- of empire must bo n rail wav, or a canal, or a puoumalid tubu. Until science manages (oshortoif tho distance from ocean to ocean, the' prairies of tho far West cannot bo brok en up into grain-fields. Tho tido of immigration has flowed near tho limit of successful agriculture. There nro1 two lessons to Uo drawn from this fact. Tho first is, tho Inexpediency of en couraging further Immigration, espe cially that of tho thousands of English agricultural laborers who are now bog ging passages to this deliislvo Canaan; Tho second is, tho necessity of concoii trallug scientific- attention ou the ques tion of cheap transportation. Thn dis covery of somo practical way of short cuing tho dlstaueo between Chliagnf and Now York would puhtlo limit of agrlciilturo nearer tho Rocky Motui lulu, and ituuta so irirow opuuHuuiuui' great belt o( our Western laud to set tlcmeut and development. Haislng Hogs. Keep no more hog thau you aro will Ing to furuJsh with good bedding. A hojf will keep himself nearly ns clean? as a man If ho has a ehanco, but if ho ii poorly bedded, ho will bo tiro to makri himself filthy. T think that dry groumf for yard is to bo preferred, and n couplo of pail of water on each horf iu a hot day will do him good even If thcro Is no danger of hi melting. If we ralso pork to sell, we must raise our" our own pigi, and not pnv $V0 in the fall, nnd much, higher In tho spring.
